This manual explains how to charge your iPhone efficiently and how to check your iPhone battery health

The battery in an iPhone and other smartphones will gradually deteriorate over time; the more frequently it is charged, the more it deteriorates. The method used to charge the smartphone will also affect how much the battery may deteriorate.

You may take a variety of steps to guarantee that your battery lasts longer, and some of these features are already included in devices made by Apple and other manufacturers.

To guarantee that you get the most battery life possible out of your smartphone, Apple includes a function where you can monitor the health of your iPhone battery and optimize how the device charges.

How do you check iPhone battery health?

The settings menu on your iPhone makes it simple to carry out this action. You must navigate to Settings > Battery, then Battery Health, to examine the battery’s current state of health.

As you can see in the image above, my iPhone’s battery health is at 95%. This will show you the maximum capacity for the iPhone battery. Given that the gadget is an iPhone 11 Pro Max from 2019, this is not terrible. One of the causes of this is that I’ve utilized Apple’s Optimized Battery Charging ever since it became available; it unquestionably affects the health of your battery.

How do you set up Optimized Battery Charging and what is it?

Go to Settings > Battery and choose Optimized Battery Charging to configure Optimized Battery charging on your iPhone. Once the function is configured, your iPhone will learn how you use the device while it is being charged and when is the optimal time to charge it.

If you change your iPhone while you sleep, it will be 80% charged when you wake up and 20% charged just before you leave for work in the morning. This helps your iPhone’s battery last longer since the battery experiences the most stress when it is still charging at full capacity.

The only drawback is that if you depart from your schedule, the gadget could not be completely charged, which is a nice function and it works well. If I get up at 4 am instead of 6 am, for instance, my iPhone could not be fully charged, so you should keep this in mind if you want to venture outside of your usual pattern.

How do I see what apps are using up my iPhone battery?

You can simply find out which applications are draining your iPhone’s battery life by going to Settings > Energy and scrolling down. You will then see a list of the apps that have drained your battery in the past 24 hours as well as the previous 10 days.

Then, you can determine which applications are using your battery more than others. Generally, these are the apps that you use the most, however occasionally, if there is a problem with the app, it may be consuming more power than it should.
